Videography for We Plant it Forward

WPIF-logo_sub

The Cause

The mission of We Plant it Forward is to bring health and well being to humanity through tree planting and educating people about the benefits of trees. We Plant it Forward is a result of the growth a tree planting initiative started by the Agni Institute. 

The Challenge

We need help communicating what we do to potential funders and the general public in a way that is clear, dynamic and engaging. By delivering a clear, dynamic message, we hope to secure sustained financial and community support and engagement. The success of our work is evident through the positive feedback we get from teachers/parents and students. We would like a videography professional to produce a short promotional video to put on our website. The video would showcase the work We Plant it Forward does with elementary and middle school age children to educate them about the benefits of trees, how trees grow, the role trees play in the ecosystem, and hands on tree planting activities and tree giveaways.

The Project: Videography

Estimated Volunteer Time (Now through April 30):

19-25 hours

See Scope of Work / Project Steps Show

End Result

The project will result in the following deliverables:

  • A fully edited 3 minute promotional video for We Plant it Forward.
  • B-roll of footage future promotions.

Impact

This video will expand our reach and provide a dynamic resource for us to showcase our work with school age students. We will use it to tell our story to potential funders, volunteers, and community partners. We also hope that the video will engage people that visit our website and encourage them to explore our programs. By showcasing the enthusiasm of the participants in our events that results from the work we do with them, we will attract more interest to help sustain our ability to fulfill our mission: to restore and preserve the natural environment through tree planting and educating the community about the benefits of trees.

The application for this project is now closed, if you are interested in taking on this project or something like it, contact volunteer@activategood.org for more information.

Videography for Marbles Kids Museum

The Cause

Marbles Kids Museum is a hands-on, minds-on museum that inspires imagination, discovery and learning through extraordinary adventures in play and larger-than-life IMAX experiences. Museum exhibits are designed for children 10 and under, and the Wells Fargo IMAX Theatre on campus caters to adults and children with a complete calendar of feature and documentary films.

The Challenge

Marbles Kids Museum is an extremely visual and high-energy environment with an infinite number of moving and captivating moments perfect for video and photography. However as a nonprofit organization, with tight operating capital, we do not have the resources to professionally capture those moments. As such, we have relied primarily on the generosity of local professionals, students and amateurs for our video and photo content.

In particular, with an ever increasing number of school groups visiting the museum we have a need to be more efficient in our museum operations to create a better overall experience for those groups and for the overall population of visitors. We’d like to create a short tutorial/educational video for school group visitors that can be hosted on our website and viewed by school teachers, students and chaperones prior to their visit. We believe this will better prepare each group for their visit and create an improved experience for all guests visiting Marbles Kids Museum.

The Project: Videography

Estimated Volunteer Time (Now – April 30): 32-44 hours

See Scope of Work / Project Steps Show

End Result

The project will result in the following deliverables:

  • A fully edited short tutorial / educational video (no longer than 10 minutes) for school group visitors
  • A quality b-roll of play in the existing exhibits for future promotions

Impact

This project would have a significant impact within our organization to include a better internal staff experience, but more importantly a better overall customer experience for the school groups and other museum visitors. This project could help to promote our school visits, at the same time allowing us to serve a larger number of school visitors without a negative impact to the museum’s operations and overall guest experience.

We believe, based on our Educator Advisory feedback, that a tutorial video on school group visitation would greatly enrich the visit for our school groups. In addition, we believe that the video will help streamline school group visits, which has a positive impact on our staff and our non-school group guests. An improved visitor experience could ultimately lead to an increase in field trips, general visitation and a higher-caliber Marbles experience.
